Learning means revising what you have learned every now and then.

Therefore, let's get back to  gerunds once more ( you learned that in grade 7)

 

Do this exercise and this, and this and this and this and this.

You can check the correct answers yourself.

This time you don't have to copy anything....

but if you have problems, you HAVE TO TELL ME!


C: Listening

 

The song "Paper Planes" by M.I.A. is used in Slumdog Millionaire in various scenes. Below is the music video as well as the lyrics of the song.

 

Why do you think did the director, Danny Boyle, chose to use this song in the film?

Think of the lyrics as well as the music itself.

 

Write at least half a page. This time some of you REALLY have to hand it it. Julius has to remind me that I want to collect some answers. If you don't remind me, you'll have to sing karaoke!


Paper Planes

 

I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name
If you come around here, I make 'em all day
I'll get one done in a second if you wait

Everyone's a winner we're making our fame
Bona fide hustler making my name
